The 49ers second year quarterback Colin Kaepernick completed 16 of 28 passes for 302 yards in the Super Bowl, his first 300-yard passing game in his short career, but as we know, it wasn't enough. The Ravens walked off the field Super Bowl champs, and the 49ers can only think about missed opportunities, mistakes and non-calls as they reflect on what would've been.

15 Comments:
  • the officials are supposed to be the best for the the super bowl but they fell far short from that. the crew chief was terrible!
  • Kaepernick can't lay the blame for their loss on himself. Yea, it's a common reaction for a QB, but the first half mistakes did them in. Kaepernick is for real and the future QB for the niners. Now, if they would 86 Randy Moss and get another receiver who wants to contribute physically, not just with his mouth, they will be back next year.
  • Kapernick played very well. Just came up short. But in way, I am still tick-off the way Harbaugh handled the Alex Smith deal. Maybe that was why Smith was smiling on the sidelines.
  • Agreed. The 9ers were doing fine with Smith and the only reason he was out of the game was because of a concussion. Jim Harbaugh deserved to lose; that was his "karma" for treating Alex Smith the way he did.
  • That makes no sense. With your logic Jim's punishment equates to Jim and Alex both loosing a super bowl ring.. How the heck does that benefit Alex in anyway as punishment to Jim?. Are you sniffing glue?
  • The funny thing is is that with Alex Smith the 49ers actually had a better chance to win. The Ravens had already made up their minds they weren't going to let Kaerpernick to beat them by running. He was able late in the game to get a few 10-15 yders in but they had him bottled up most of the game. He made some rookie mistakes that anyone involved in sports could have told you were going to happen. He has a strong arm but just like Marino said, "He cant track more than one receiver at a time". Alex Smith can do that and he wouldnt have made the rookie mistakes. Harbough will have a lot to ponder this offseason. If Kaepernick gets hurt who ya gonna call?
  • 9ers got their asses handed to them by a tougher team. they deserved to lose and only were given a chance by the lights out fiasco. If that hadnt happened ravens blow the punks out for sure.
  • You really are a dingleberry.
  • What a game; here is the thing: the Niner's Defense didn't get enough pressure on Flacco to make him uncomfortable when he passed. I didn't hear Smith's name mentioned once (either of them); special teams? You saw what hppened. I don't fault Kap but while his performance was not stellar, the rest of the team was mediocre at best. Plus you can't have turnovers in the SB and expect to win the game. Finally, don't wait until the final play of the game to expect the refs to bail you out: they don't and they didn't! That game was lost at 28-6. The Niners simply were not the bestter team that day. Simple as that.
  • Gratituous Randy Moss-hater remarks aside, Colin could have tried to run it in from the 5 on 3rd down, as Vince Young did in that famous Texas/USC game. At worst, he could have gotten close enough for a Frank Gore run.
  • "The Worlds Greatest Wide Receiver" Randy Moss ought to keep his mouth shut unless he can produce. He is a high price has been cancer. Period........ All of this and the Alex Smith deal serves Harbaugh well. Learn from your brother what a class coach is. End the tantrums on the sidelines.
  • It's time to stop the rubbish about non-calls against the Ravens. There were as many, if not more, non-calls involving the 49ers, who had a hand on the body of the Ravens receivers many, many times during the game. Even the CBS broadcast crew had to choke back comments about why illegal contact, holding or interference wasn't called on the Niners. We know Randy Moss is a loud mouth,lazy receiver. We probably can also agree that the officiating crew stunk and would get a "D" for their efforts. The NFL better do a better job selecting officials for their most important game of the year or pack it in. Next up - why the hell hold the Super Bowl in New Jersey/New York in February? It's Wintertime on the East Coast and will be cold. A FLAT OUT DUMB, but political decision. It won't be 75 for the Super Bowl next year, like it was in San Diego, while we watched this year. Time to wise up NFL or get the hand/body warmers ready for the 2014 fiasco. The lights won't go out due to the lack of juice; they'll freeze out.
  • Listen to me Colin! Your receivers missed catching passes, what, 4 times which would have led to a score or field goal. Also, you have no control over the defensive CORNER BACKS who HOLD and are not flagged (like the end of the game holding non-call in the END ZONE) It was a tough day, you did great. Next year is coming and you are still young and you will get better--but you can't catch the ball for your receivers (ASK TEBOW--his receivers in Denver dropped lots--Tebow was blamed "he can't pass" nonsense. The line has to block, the center has to hike, the QB delivers the ball: YOU have no control over the receiver catching or dropping a pass. YOU have no control over the D.B. holding the receiver. 'nuff said.

BALTIMORE RAVENS VS. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (-3.5) The Super Bowl is finally here.
